Everglades City

The “pure Florida” of bygone days still exists in the Everglades region. Everglades City and nearby Chokoloskee Island give visitors a glimpse into Southwest Florida's past, with museums and small town charm. With Everglades National Park, the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, Big Cypress National Preserve, the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge, Picayune Strand State Forest, Collier-Seminole State Park and the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park nearby, visitors can witness Florida’s true nature.
